Very cool! I just microwaved some popcorn (I'm not kidding) so I can watch now.

It is exciting and I don't even have a car on this ship!

She started through the first locks, Gatun Locks, almost 8 hours ago. That is the Maersk Wind next to her. They went through Gatun together, too. She is also carrying cars, but I don't think they are BMWs.

Thankfully, it is a fairly slow process so you have time to enjoy it.

I am posting lots of pics for those who are missing it. There is no "rewind" on the PanCanal camera web site.

I am a bit confused. There was a different view of the locks earlier. What are we looking at now?

There is a set of "step up" locks called Gatun Locks on the Atlantic side and a set of "step down" locks called Mira Flores on the Pacific side. She is now stepping down to the Pacific Ocean. She will step down three times going through Mira Flores. She entering the first of three steps now.

They are changing the camera angles. You can always switch to the hi-res camera.

I emailed them and asked them to keep it on Asian Emperor. We'll see if they get the message. They did it one time when I was tracking another ship.

OK. I am back. I can keep posting pics. It is good news that she's taking the lock slot closest to the camera. It will be a good view!
